PressbooksEDU

Product Highlights

PressbooksEDU is a book production software that enables the creation and distribution of open educational resources. While Minitex offers a version of Pressbooks for use by library users in the state of Minnesota, purchasing an institutional PressbooksEDU network gives access to educational features, institutional branding, ongoing training for users across your institution, and premium support for network managers. A PressbooksEDU network allows you to:

  • Showcase and distribute the collection of open textbooks and other resources your institution creates on an OER platform and catalog branded to your university or college
  • Create textbooks and course materials that can be made available for free online to students
  • Produce open textbooks in many digital formats and in print
  • Make engaging course content that incorporates embedded media, interactive content like H5P quizzes, and more
  • Clone any openly licensed public webbook from another Pressbooks network directly into your own network to adapt, remix, and redistribute it
  • Benefit from reliable network performance and security
